Did I not sufficiently put to rest any thoughts of DeMarcus Cousins in green yesterday? Maybe Sacramento Kings GM Geoff Petrie will today (via PBT)
Reached Monday morning, Petrie said Cousins is not on the block.
“You can put that one to rest,” Petrie said. “He’s not going anywhere. You can lay that to rest. Some of that stuff lives in its own reality.”
Petrie said the return of Cousins to the team provided “resolution” to the shouting match with Smart.
“Everybody’s moving forward,” Petrie said. “He’s still a young, developing player that’s yet to reach his potential and is still a major piece of the future planning here. Everyone’s committed to working with his development as a player and his overall growth…he’s still an important part of the future. He’s like a lot of people. Some have good days, and some days are better than others. We’re going to continue to work with him to help him reach his potential, which is still very high.”.
Of course, I’m sure he could jus

DETROIT -- DeMarcus Cousins is a very talented NBA player. That doesn't mean the Pistons should try to get him.
Cousins was chosen by the Sacramento Kings with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, two slots ahead of Greg Monroe. Because the two play the same position and the Pistons were interested in Cousins back then, people often link the two players.

DeMarcus Cousins was suspended one game by the Sacramento Kings for his actions in an altercation with head coach Keith Smart. He was suspended for kicking O.J Mayo in the groin. He was fined for getting into an altercation with broadcaster Sean Elliot. He's been a mess. And the Kings may not want to deal with it much longer. They could look to trade him. As we mentioned...
Well it's been awhile since I compared Boogie Cuz to Marvin from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (and I'm right dammit!), but well, apparently DeMarcus Cousins got the message about what passing actually means from the right spots on the floor. It's amazing (and depressing) that the best passer on this team is Cousins who also leads the team in Field Goal attempts...

The Kings arrive as one of the leagues most discussed teams, but for all the wrong reasons. DeMarcus Cousins, their talented young center, has been suspended for a shouting match with coach Keith Smart, one of the most laid-back people in world history. Itd be a surprise if Cousins is still with the team following the trading deadline. The Cavs, meanwhile, have lost...
